IAF renewes bombing of Beirut, Bekaa Valley

IAF warplanes renewed strikes against Hizbullah strongholds in the battered outskirts of the Lebanese capital as well as on Lebanon's northern border with Syria and in the eastern Bekaa Valley on Thursday. In Beirut, witnesses said at least four missiles hit the southern suburb of Dahieh. Lebanese television said the attacks targeted several buildings in a Hizbullah compound of Dahieh's al-Ruweis neighborhood. The compound, which includes a center for religious teaching, has been attacked in earlier raids and sustained seizable damage. It was the first air raid against the Lebanese capital's southern suburb in almost a week.
